Crafty Gardening

I am continually impressed/surprised/inspired by the creativity that lives within kids. Things that I would never “see” are so apparent.

This evening my 5 year old walks up to me with a ripped Crayola pencil holder and declares “I want to do this project!”. I take a look – am some what confused , but then take a look at all the material that she is holding and then I see it through her eyes.






Urban Planning

The conversation began with my 5 year old dragging out a drawing board that my husband brought home for the girls to draw on. He mentioned that’s what architects use- she asks what’s an architect- a discussion of houses and design commenced. I said hey why don’t we draw houses. That 1 minute exchange was the inspiration for the rest of the evening.
